The Oxford Dictionary defines style as “A distinctive appearance, typically determined by the principles according to which something is designed“.
Style in snowboarding however, is something that can’t be defined, every single rider has their own unique fingerprint in the way that they ride. Whether it’s a tweak here, or a poke there – style is timeless and individual. What might be stylish to one person, can be horrible to another.
We’ve rounded up what we consider to be some of the most stylish tricks that every snowboarder needs on lock in this new series. Initially, we were going to post just one rider with one trick, but after arguments that raged for days, we thought ‘why not include more than just one rider for each trick?’.
Thus, with the fog cleared, we’ve embarked on a series of tricks with a whole host of riders from different era’s and from different styles. Welcome to Style-101.
